Rated 4 / 5 stars

While at first I didn't enjoy the jerky animation and long build up, when the film got moving is when I really got drawn in. The presence of the monster is genuinely frightening and you can really feel the what the characters are feeling despite there being no dialogue or facial expression to go by. The ending seemed a little anticlimactic and mean-spirited, but I still enjoyed myself and did not regret watching it.

it's always amazing one pulls off a complete story, with little to no dialogue whatsoever... very well done.

Great film, little jerky but overall awesome. The art style is very similar to limbo, which I love.
